Karnataka: Rahul questions Modi's silence on BJP ticket for Reddy brothers

"The BJP-RSS duo doesn't care about Karnataka's aspirations, it only cares about polarising people to win elections", Gandhi said.

Gandhi's Jana Aashirwada Yatre rally was held on the same day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was speaking at Kalaburgi 117 kms away.

"This Karnataka government frustrated all attempts by the Centre to stop illegal mining in Ballari.to allow auction of mining blocks".

Not a single project could be undertaken in Karnataka without corruption and bribery, The Indian Express quoted Modi as saying.

PM Modi also said Bengaluru was earlier a city of lakes, but Congress transformed it into a "city of burning lakes". "This is shocking. This could have been used for desilting of Tungabhadra Dam for the benefit of the district's farmers", he said. Congress loses sleep. He said that Patel was instrumental in forcing the Nizam of Hyderabad to accede to the country.

"Frome computer capital it has become crime capital, its cosmopolitan culture has turned into cultural chaos, and from being a start-up hub, it has got converted into pothole hub", he said.

"Abuse me but I won't make personal remarks against the prime minister", Rahul Gandhi told PM Modi at a Karnataka poll rally. "The people of Karnataka are not paying any attention to Modi's attacks or words". When our soldiers carried out surgical strike, the Congress party questioned them. I want to ask you, in our country, has even an uneducated person committed the sin of calling our courageous soldiers goons?

On Tuesday, Modi launched a blistering attack on the Congress and chief minister Siddaramaiah, as he floated "2+1" theory to target the "dynasty Congress". The Congress government here couldn't even frame a strong mining policy.

The party urged the EC to enquire into and take strict and prompt action against the state BJP leadership. "This is typically how Congress plays politics", the prime minister said. "We don't want to waste our vote on a party that is not in a position to form the government on its own and might join hands rather than take on anti-constitution and anti-minority forces", said a group of engineering students in Mysuru without revealing their caste or naming any party. He further boasted about his party (BJP) and claimed that all the promises such as building modern roads and hospitals have been fulfilled.

Kumar who has won four elections goes up against former Bengaluru mayor G Padmavathi of the Congress, a candidate he has beaten once before. The support bases of the two parties are in different regions, with the JD (S) confined to Mysuru and southern Karnataka where the Vokkaligas have a strong presence.
